We would like to reassure visitors that we are monitoring and acting on guidance from the Department of Health, Public Health England and wider government announcements in relation to Coronavirus.
With immediate effect we are asking family and friends to only visit for essential reasons as a preventative measure. We have decided to cancel all non-essential visitors to the services and are encouraging residents and staff to postpone any appointments, travel unless absolutely necessary. We have taken this difficult decision in order to prevent the spread of coronavirus to any of our services. This will help protect both staff and residents.
We will be supporting residents in maintaining communication with family and friends by co-ordinating phone calls and where possible video calls.
We are also taking the precaution to temporarily postpone or cancel events, programs, and services.
The only visitors allowed will be essential medical visits and contractors who need to carry out essential repairs or maintenance tasks.
We will continue to check for new advice as the situation changes and update accordingly.
